Lillian loves the idea of a sippy cup. She gets excited when she sees it, and desperately wants to hold it. But when she puts it in her mouth and water comes out, it's the worst thing in the world. Then, she sees the cast-aside cup, and gets excited all over again. It keeps her interested for 10 minutes or so.
Tyler won't stop playing with the Wegits. I step on them all over the house. I think this is supposed to be a cat.

Enough about Lillian's head. Worrying will only give you an ulcer. We have an appointment on January 4th, so we can't do anything until then. Just keep her in your prayers. Yes, it might be a big deal. Yes, it might not mean anything at all. Until then, she's a developmentally normal cute cabbage-patch girl who can roll over, smile, laugh, and babble. She's ok.

I've seen people cut up jalapenos on TV before. Just slice open, scoop out the seeds, and chop up right? Wrong. About 5 minutes after I performed the afore mentioned steps, the back of my finger was burning like I had touched the stove with it. I ran it under cold water for a bit, then went back to cooking. After it persisted in burning, I stuck it in my mouth and it was really spicy. Pretty soon, the back of my neck started burning, then all of my hands, then my cheeks, and eyes. I consulted the internet, my mom, and Tyler's mom on how to treat pepper burns. Somewhere after the milk, vinegar, and baking soda (see pictures) my face stopped burning. However, my hands continued to burn even after the Desitin and Anbesol. They burned for two days.

This series of pictures showcases two things. First, the super cute bow that Tonya got for Lillian. And second, according to the chart at the doctor's office, Lillian is normal height, a little heavy for weight, and has a teeny-tiny head. She's in the 38th or so percentile. The problem is actually that she was born with a normal sized head, and it isn't growing properly. So the doctor, in his this-probably-isn't-a-problem-but-could-be-a-really-very-large-problem voice told me not to worry and that we'd have to come back in a few weeks to recheck and possibly have x-rays taken.
I told Mom and her words were, "well, she certainly didn't get the Calder head." Remember when Allison got the sweater? Hehe.
